“Conflict Minerals” are metals such as tantalum (Ta), tin (Sn), tungsten (W) and gold (Au) sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries’ conflict areas. Due to the illegal mining and human rights abuses in these areas controlled by non-government army group, the U.S. law, Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act H.R.4173, is passed and the section 1502 defines the conflict minerals requirements.
ICOP has used the reasonable effort to require our suppliers comply with DRC-Free requirements and will commit to:
- Avoid conflict minerals being used in products, and also request our suppliers to follow up this policy and the process control.
- Cooperate with customer and the demands, request our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with the supply chain to assure the metals used in parts supplied to ICOP are not sourced from mines in conflict areas.
